If you've been listening to the Engadget Mobile podcast
lately, you'll know that we don't much like this trend of using verbs as phone names
, but T-Mobile clearly hasn't gotten the message, as one of its upcoming handsets is rumored to be called the Astound
. What exactly this rebadged Nokia C7
is supposed to astound us with, we're not really sure. We've seen its Clear Black Display already, which is very nice
, but we've also seen the dead OS walking
that is its Symbian installation. Still, for $80 on contract, it doesn't necessarily have to compete with the crème de la Gingerbread
to be an appealing option. Look out for it early next month, waving the Magenta flag with pride.
